Bachata

Here are the 12 steps BACHATA system we tech for the beginner level. The first 3 videos teach fundamentals of basic step, timing, lead and follow,  followed by the 12 basic steps of Bachata. At the bottom of the page are 3 more videos: sequence 1, 2 and 3. Each sequence has 4 moves (1-4, 5-8, 9-12) where Esteban shows you how to connect those 12 steps, to music in a sequence way. These videos are an aid to help students access all the material of what we teach at class anywhere, at the same time that anyone can learn and practice at home from these quality instructional videos.
